Building on their best-selling book Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in
Every Class Every Day
, flipped education innovators Jonathan Bergmann and
Aaron Sams return with a book series that supports flipped learning in the four
topic areas of Science, Maths, English and Humanities and Social Sciences, as
well as the primary classroom.

The flipped class, in brief, is direct instruction
delivered to the individual outside of class so there is more strategic use of
in-class time for group work and individualised attention. In this new book,
the authors discuss how educators can successfully apply the flipped classroom
model to teaching English. Each chapter offers practical guidance, including
how to approach lesson planning, what to do with class time and how to employ
project-based learning techniques.

This book is a practical guide for English teachers
interested in flipping their classrooms. It helps real English teachers deal
with the realities of teaching in an increasingly interconnected and digital
world. This book serves as a guide for English teachers who are beginning to
flip their classes or are interested in exploring the flipped model for the
first time. Each chapter explores practical ways to bring flipped learning into
the English classroom, including:

  • How to flip your class, and the four
    hurdles to flipping (thinking, technology, time and training).

  • How your approach to planning changes as
    you implement flipped learning.

  • How flipping will enhance the practical
    English experience for students.

  • What tech tools are available for English
    teachers to flip their classes.

  • How to teach reading, writing, grammar and
    vocabulary in the flipped classroom.

  • How English teachers can give students
    more ownership and choice in their learning.

  • How flipped learning can provide an
    environment where projects can be done more often and with more fidelity.

  • How to use gamification to flip the
    English class.

  • How to implement the flipped-mastery model
    into an English classroom.

  • How
    flipped learning can work alongside learning through inquiry.
